BlackBerry Passport launches in India for INR 49,990
Just as promised, BlackBerry has released it’s latest smartphone, the BB Passport, into the Indian market. The phone is expected to go on sale in scores of other markets still.
Phone business in India is rapidly claiming it’s sofa on e-commerce websites and doesn’t seem to be coming down soon. The Passport is one of the very many smartphones that will be sold exclusively online — though for a limited period.
The smartphone will be available through Amazon.in for 49,990 rupees (about $813). Thanks to BB’s recent affiliation with Amazon, the latter’s App Store, which offers downloads of Android applications, comes preloaded with the BlackBerry Passport.
On the hardware side, the Passport features a 4.5″ 1440p by 1440p display which is guarded by Corning’s Gorilla Glass protection. There’s 3GB of RAM on board, as well as a Snapdragon 800 CPU and 32GB of expandable storage.
BlackBerry Passport runs on BB OS 10.3 which has a thing for supporting Android apps. The phone also comes with a 13MP camera and then a 3450mAh battery cell to power up the unit.
According to official numbers, BB Passport is currently doing well in terms of sales. However, we’ll await to see what the response will be like in India since the phone is priced higher here than over there in the US.
